My name is Tariq, and I am from Jordan. I am a master's graduate in linguistics, a translator, creative writer, and a teacher.
I have always been fascinated by systems of languages since I was little kid, and I have decided to pursue a career in linguistics. Linguistics is the scientific study of languages in which one can discover, analyze, and explore the surface and deep levels of language systems. I'm, myself, most interested in the grammatical aspects of language knowns as syntax, and I have been studying the classics and the modern theories to find new models to my mother tongue: Arabic. I am looking forward to triggering an intersection between syntactic theories and applied linguistics which addresses educational application, translation, and discourse analysis. I believe aiming at balancing between theory and application is the optimal approach to the actual meaning of language.
In addition to the world of linguistics, I find myself interested in philosophy, particularly logic philosophies as well as existential theories. I believe philosophy is a key to endless doors for critical thinking, creativity, and individuality.
I consider myself thoughtful type of person and ambitious to unleash my potentials in reality, and I believe I owe societal responsibility to employ both my knowledge and experience in serving the community and valuing the elegant process of teaching and helping out students.
In my leisure time, I enjoy reading all sort things, especially in humanities, and I am strongly passionate about athletic sports and going into adventurous that turn life exciting!
I am highly interested in theoretical linguistics, especially syntax syntax-semantic interference, and phonology. I have special interest in Arabic linguistics and its syntactic complexities, particularly the linguistic units of dialects and vernacular.
As I have worked as a translator, I have also developed keen interest in translation theories, and as a teacher, I have also interest in teaching methodologies, discourse analysis, and applied linguistics.
